You have been arrested and charged with indecent exposure, possession of child pornography, or sexual battery. You may think it will be easy to prove your innocence, but you are taking a big risk with your future. If you have been charged with a sex crime in Florida, you need to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney with sex crimes experience to represent you as soon as possible. This is no time to bury your head in the sand. In Miami, you want the Izquierdo Law Firm on your side.
What to Look for in a Sex Crimes Defense Attorney
As soon as you are aware that you may be facing a sex crime, you should contact an attorney, but not just any attorney. The guy who handled your divorce or your brother’s drug arrest should not be the first call you make. A sex crime conviction can ruin your life. Consider your defense lawyer very carefully. You need an attorney with the following qualifications:
Experience With the Charge You Are Facing.
The sex crimes category encompasses a broad range of offenses, and you want an attorney who has dealt with the charges you are facing. For example, an attorney who has successfully defended someone charged with indecent exposure may not be prepared to handle a rape charge.
Admission to Both State and Federal Courts.
Whether a sex crime is a state or federal offense depends on the seriousness of the crime and whether state borders were crossed. A pornography charge involving the internet, for example, could involve the FBI and be handled in federal court.
Genuine Concern For You and Your Future.
You want an attorney with the compassion to meet your family, listen to your story, and fight for the best possible outcome. To many criminal defense attorneys, clients are just numbers. You need someone on your side who cares about you.
